Publisher Big Sugar and developer Ludomotion have announced roguelite action RPG sequel Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy for consoles and PC. It will launch in 2020. An Open Access campaign has also launched on crowdfunding platform Fig.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy is a completely different beast than its predecessor. With Unexplored we experimented with new ways of generating procedural dungeons. We wanted levels to feel as though they were designed by hand, rather than by an algorithm.
The experiment succeeded beyond our expectations and we’re extremely proud that our humble indie game has received widespread recognition from critics. Most notably, PC Gamer, Rock Paper Shotgun, and Vice Waypoint all featured Unexplored as part of their respective Game of the Year articles.
With Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy, by using both new and improved development tools/technology, the introduction of an array of original features and mechanics, and by applying an eye-catching art style, we’re continuing to build on the solid foundations we established with the development of the original Unexplored.
So while the sequel will, like its predecessor, be able to deliver unexpected surprises after hundreds of hours, it will be a much richer, more immersive, and even more expansive experience. We want players to escape into a world that has a real sense of exploration and wonder, with captivating stories and adventures unique to every different hero.
